Teachers Touch Tomorrow FFO's and Giveaway Reminder!

So back in the end of May I finished this lovely design below for both of my daughter's Pre-school teachers.  And I managed to finish them ( I am horrible at turning finishes into Fully Finished Objects) to give to her teachers in time for the last day :)

Here are the finished stitched pieces.

I was able to find these options in my fabric stash.  I really liked the matching colors in both and wasn't sure which one to choose...

Here is my final fabric decision all pinned up and ready for the sewing machine!

Pushing the fabrics through the hole to turn them right side up...this part always makes me nervous.  I hate wrinkling up the fabric of something you have worked hard to stitch.

Next step is the stuffing!

And then hand stitching up the hole.  If anyone has any recommendations for a better way to do this please let me know...

And here is my FFO from the front!

And the beautiful backs :)

The teachers left me a wonderful note that they were happy to receive these as gifts!  I am proud of actually taking the time to get out my sewing machine to work on these finished pieces and being able to send them as a gift on time :)

Don't forget to sign up for my giveaway for my 4th Blogaversary which was actually yesterday here!

See you soon and Happy Stitching!


  1. I am sure that they were thrilled with them - such a great design and gorgeous backing fabric.

  2. Beautiful! I'm not surprised the teachers were pleased and you're right to be proud of yourself for actually finishing them too.
    I use ladder stitch for sewing up the gap (try YouTube for instruction videos). I find it easier to get a neat finish. But your stitching is so neat on these they are perfect.

  3. Great job! Love the fabric you picked out :D
